Wonderland wasn't always this way.
There was a time when it mirrored medieval England, albeit with a few magical elements: a few quirks and eccentricities that made it truly unique. The Royal Palace was a vision in red stone, presiding over a chequerboard kingdom, with the bountiful palace gardens and maze, to the villages beyond. The Tulgey Wood and all it's whimsy to the far West, and the Caterpillar Forest bordering onto the Flower Garden in the East. The tea parties thrown by the Hatter were main events, and while all feared the Queen's mercurial temper and the fine blade of her Guillotine... all was well.
Until a little girl named Alice Liddell disturbed the status quo: until her death sparked a revolution.
Wonderland began to lose its 'muchness'. The kingdom began to fall into decay, as the taint of modern London spread. Tulgey Wood turned dark, thorns replacing the flowers and the trees losing their colour into a foreboding monochrome as the broken-hearted Cheshire secluded himself within its shadows: the flower garden lay abandoned as the flowers grew legs and left it behind. The Palace crumbled and was rebuilt with new materials imported from the human realm. The modern world invaded, and a new monarch rose in the ashes of the first. No less ruthless, no less cunning... history is repeating itself as Wonderland struggles to regain her true self.
To look at Wonderland is to look at a Dystopian London: where nature is beginning to reassert herself, vines creeping up the sides of skyscrapers, flowers blossoming in cracked concrete. It is a strange world the beings of Wonderland find themselves in, no longer permitted to cross between Wonderland and the world above. They must rebuild their society, and yet they cannot help but wonder, that if they're all banned from travelling to the human world...
Is it true that the White Rabbit is bringing humans to Wonderland?
And if so...
